2013-2014 BAC RallyCross Challenge is wrapping up!

2013/2014 BAC RallyCross Challenge standings can be found here:

Class Standings
Overall Standings

 

There’s some good points battles heading into the final event! Blu Vandaalen has a solid lead for the overall championship but anything can happen! For second place its a super tight drivetrain battle with Ian Pearcerepresenting AWD and Dave Hull pushing (pulling!) FWD!

The next and final event is April 13th! Lets hope for two dry weeks so we can have a good high speed dust-fest for a sendoff of the 2013-2014 season!

Sunday’s BAC RallyCross at AMP is on!

Its refreshing to be posting good news on the Friday before a RallyCross for once! This Sunday’s Bluenose Autosport Club’s rallycross at Atlantic Motorsport Park is on! There’s a good base down so the course should be even smoother than usual, though expect lots of slip! Bring your good winters and see you there!

Repair work on the SSW RallyCross lot!

Thanks very much to Dave Hull, Ian Pearce and Jonathan Conrad for the cleanup at the Scotia Speed World big lot today. With Dave’s dragging and Jon’s plowing we greatly improved the condition of the big lot. I’d say its at 70-80% of perfect condition again! Now if we can just get some warm+dry or some very cold weather we’re set for using the big lot again!

Here’s the before shots. I wasn’t kidding when I said we couldn’t use it frozen in this state:

Some height perspective:

Feb 16th FMC and MMSC RallyCrosses CANCELLED

The New Brunswick weather forecast for both Moncton and Fredericton has forced the cancellation of both RallyCross events still scheduled for tomorrow. Mother nature doesn’t like RallyCross this weekend, apparently!

The next scheduled RallyCross events for BAC and FMC is March 2nd. Watch the Events Calendar for details!

BAC February 16th RallyCross CANCELLED!

Sorry folks, not what I wanted to be writing again but the rain last night really killed us. I visited the lot this afternoon and you sink into the ground just walking on it.

This is about a half throttle launch on the small lot. Picture this times 15-20 cars times 4 runs. We’d have trenches Bruce could lay some Natural Gas piping in.

Sorry folks, mother nature just isn’t working with us this weekend. Hopefully some folks will find their outlet at the MMSC and FMC events this weekend.

February 2nd RallyCross CANCELLED

Well, another change of plans. Ian Pearce and I visited the site this morning and there’s absolutely no point in having a work party tomorrow. The entire lot is still covered in snow and even with the warmer temperatures its unlikely to thaw enough to be movable, plus with the snow its hard to find the spots that need to be worked on anyway.

The Small lot is flatter, but people have been in there as well and its covered in ~2″ ice that breaks apart just walking on it. Its sharded up in such a way that its very possible for it to wreck tires and cause other mayhem.

50% of the lot is covered in this:

Both lots are pretty much guaranteed to break cars at the moment unfortunately.

There’s really nothing we can do tomorrow so consider the event 100% cancelled at this time. Stay tuned for the next event on February 16th!
